Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Do you have any evidence that they are relaying this information to 3rd parties?
Or are they just talking amongst themselves?
How old are your girls?
Have you discussed the situation with them and let them know that you are taking your medication as prescribed or even less?
Ok, at this point, you can't prevent them from talking about the situation between themselves as people have a right under the freedom of speech laws to talk about whatever they want.
However, if they are gossiping to 3rd parties about this, you can have a local attorney send them a "cease and desist" letter threatening to sue them if they continue to bring up your personal private matters to the general public.
The threat of suing someone from an attorney will tend to make them decide it isn't worth continuing on with their actions..
I am not really sure what to tell you... if you think that they are doing this intentionally to cause you emotional distress, you could file suit against them for intentional infliction of emotional distress, which is a "tort" like personal injury. But suing your daughters is unlikely to rebuild the relationship...
It might be time to have a family meeting so you can all sit down and talk about their concerns and reassure them that you are doing as the doctor has instructed you, not anything else..
The phones are in my name they refuse to pay for their lines am I responsible for paying for these. I'm paying three installment payments that the only way to turn off phones and not be billed is to come up with $2000 which I don't have. Is there anything I can do about this???
That is a little off topic....but if they agreed to pay their own lines and won't now, then your recourse is to sue them in small claims court under a breach of contract claim for all the money you have paid on their behalf. And you are under no legal obligation to provide them with phones and if they are under your name, you can contact the service provider and drop them down to the lowest possible plan until you get to a point where you can turn them off..
Ok, I will opt out and open the question up to other experts.
Best of luck to you.
